Every year, the Holliston Lions Club teams up with the local VFW and American Legion to participate in this important recognition of members of the Armed Forces.
We help staff a luncheon after the annual parade which involves setting up the hall, staffing the meal and cleaning up afterwards. This is one of our best-attended events of the year in terms of Lions man hours. This is a great event and one that we are very proud to continue supporting.
For many years, the Holliston Lions Club has been hosting a senior luncheon at the Holliston Senior Center. Typically, this event is held the Sunday the week following graduation services at Holliston High School.
Lions band together to provide a hearty meal, a fun environment and a good time is had by all. You can learn more about this event from the Holliston Senior Center.
As part of our commitment to the enviroment, the Holliston Lions Club begins working in the spring to clean up the roadway. We have been doing this project for a number of years and it continues to draw Lions.
Typically, this event is active from April to October on a monthly basis. You'll see Lions methodically keeping debris cleaned up as part of the Adopt-A-Highway program. The Lions "roadway" stretches is located on Route 16 from Summer
Street to what we in Holliston affectionately call the Basil’s Plaza.

The Lend-a-Lion program is committed to helping our neighbors in need. We put together a crew (often on short notice) to help members of the Holliston community who are unable to do tasks such as cleaning up debris after a storm, shoveling snow, and in some cases putting up holiday lights. This program serves members of the community who are aged, disabled or unable to do things for themselves due to an illness. Annually, the Lead-a-Lion team can be found at Cole Court installing and removing air conditioners. If you know someone in the community who could benefit from this program, you are encouraged to reach out to the team via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out our contact form.
HOLLISTON LIONS SERVICE PROJECTS
Did you know that your old eyeglasses can help someone else see? The Holliston Lions Club regularly collects old eyeglasses and donates them to Lenscrafters. Lenscrafters then takes those glasses on missions with them around the world where your glasses can help someone who might not otherwise have access to proper eyewear see. Your donation of used eyeglasses can help another person's quality of life. Glasses may be dropped off at the Holliston Senior Center, Holliston Town Hall, Holliston Library, Holliston Post Office, Holliston Vision Center, or at Middlesex Savings Bank.
